Name:
Location: Wisconsin, United States

I am a convert to the Catholic Church after serving in ordained ministry for more than nine years in another denomination. I hold a bachelor's degree in history, a master's degree in historical theology, and another in systematic theology, and am currently working (very slowly) on my doctorate. I work in Christian Education and Formation and teach at the University level. I am blessed with a wonderful wife and eight great kids! When I'm not studying, reading, or blogging, I enjoy eating and drinking! Like Bilbo Baggins, I have been specializing in food for many years, and my table has a high reputation!

SUBJECT: RELIGION!!!

So far, in this blog, I have refrained from commenting on the current events within the Episcopal church. I left that body in 1993 and although I retain quite a few friends, both clergy and laity, within that body (and indeed graduated from Nashotah House in 1998) I have not felt it particularly necessary to add my 2 cents worth.

For the most part, this is still the way I feel. I pray for my friends still in that body and I hope that they find the peace, the hope, and the answers they need.

I do, however, want to bring to the attention of my 6 readers the recent blog posting of Jeremy Bonner writing on the recent decision of most of the Diocese of Pittsburgh to realign with the Anglican Province of the Southern Cone. Bishop Duncan of Pittsburgh is a good and godly man (and preached the sermon on the occasion of my graduation from Nashotah House).

Without further comment, I post the link to this post:

Can anyon who leaves such efforts in their past (which so tax energy, emotion, talents, time and treasure) be blamed?

If I haven't said it lately, again, welcome home, Pappa Z.
